    I just purchased a Toshiba Laptop Core 2duo, 2 gig ram, 200 gb hdd, running Vista Home Premium.

    Setup was a breeze but for some reason I am unable to access my workgroup via Wireless.

    When i connect via WIRE I have no problem seeing all the work group computers (4 other xp machines). Workgroup is called WORKGROUP, DHCP set from ROUTER. When on wireless connected via a WAP54G (linksys).

    I attempt to find the networked systems via wireless i only see the Laptop that I am on. The workgroup is the same. I have network set to private.

    I can access the Internet with no problem while on wireless. I can ping the other systems. My router is seeing the laptop when connected either wired or wireless.

    Anyone with any TIPS i would really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Anthony

    Try turning your firewall off on vista.
